The Smothers "Brothers"

Most of you have probably heard this already, but I thought it was interesting. The Smothers Brothers announced today that they're actually not brothers at all. They've just been calling each other that for years, when -- in fact -- they've been gay partners together all along. It makes sense if you think about it, even the over-emphasis they always placed on the "brother" thing: "my brother, Tommy," etc. I'm proud of them--for coming out and for carrying on the ruse for so long. I always thought they were really funny. Now I know they're really funny.
